In his welcome address, the National President, Dr Daniel Kasser Tee indicated that the CIMG Awards remains a cornerstone of the institute’s mandate to set standards for the practice of marketing in Ghana.
“This platform allows CIMG to acknowledge the efforts and achievements of marketing practitioners and marketing-oriented organisations that have consistently demonstrated innovation, creativity and effectiveness in their respective industries,” Dr Kasser Tee said.
